The final litter survey for 2014 by business group Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) shows a record 85% of Irish towns and cities, including Ennis, were Clean to European Norms last year.

The Anti-Litter League survey of 40 towns and cities, commissioned by IBAL and carried out by An Taisce, showed that over 40% were cleaner than the European average, with only six areas falling short of “clean” status, among them Drogheda, Maynooth and Tallaght. Cork, Limerick and Galway City were all Clean to European Norms, while Dublin City Centre was again moderately littered.

Sweet papers, cigarette butts, fast food wrapping and chewing gum were again the most prevalent forms of litter across the hundreds of sites surveyed. River walks /promenades, train stations and recycling facilities were the sites most likely to suffer from litter, while the cleanest areas were main streets and town centres.
